Apple is equipping its MacBooks Pro and MacMini with new hardware.
Computers will be equipped with even more powerful hardware in the future.
Cupertino – The rumor mill has been bubbling at Apple in the past few days.
Now the famous iPhone manufacturer has introduced new hardware.
Apple leaker Jon Prosser had previously announced that the company would announce something later today (January 17).
Apple: Upgrade for MacBook Pro and MacMini
In the meantime, Apple has revealed the secret in its newsroom and presented the new M2 Pro and M2 Max chip.
Regarding the two new, more powerful chips, the press release states: “With 67 billion transistors […] M2 Max pushes the performance and capabilities of Apple chips even further.
Its 400GB/s unified memory bandwidth is twice that of M2 Pro, four times that of M2, and supports up to 96GB of fast unified memory.
So huge files open instantly and working with multiple pro apps is incredibly fast and fluid.”
The M2 chip upgrade will be available for the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro and the MacMini.
However, this should not change anything in the design of the products.
With the new chip, the MacBook Pro should "handle graphics-intensive projects that other systems can't even run," writes Apple itself. In addition, a particularly important point changes: the battery life.
The new MacBook Pro should last up to 22 hours.
According to Apple, this is the “longest battery life ever on a Mac.”
Apple Business website currently unusable
Even before the news was published, speculation ran rampant online.
"I'm so excited!" Apple blogger Sam Kohl wrote on Twitter.
Another Twitter user noted shortly before the release that Apple's business website was currently unusable.
This is usually the case when new products are about to be launched.
